merry christmas.

while most of you assholes were sitting around being harassed or otherwise hassled by your family at a less than exciting christmas meal, i went to pete's this morning for breakfast. julie, who is usually working asked me if i wanted my regular table and after i sat she asked if i wanted my regular chicken fried steak with white gravy, over medium egg, hasbrowns, and whole wheat toast. to which i replied yes. to say pete was in rare form is to be redundant. i don't think i've ever had a breakfast from him that wasn't perfect. knowing this somehow made breakfast taste better on christmas day. best present i've gotten in years.
this also marks the 100th post on h-is-for-hungry. i found it fitting to talk about my favorite diner in provo, maybe anywhere. i hear alot of people go on about how they like to support local this and that (especially new hipster driven cafes), but somehow they've never ventured far enough out of their social scene to actually find local food. i think pete has had his place running for about 15-20 years? i could be wrong, but i don't care. the point is, all you idiots talking about how much you love to support local shit need to support pete. he's been around longer, his food is better, and he's nicer than any fucker trying to be cool ripping off wes anderson.
anyone who reads this with any sort of frequency, thanks. i'm not making money off this, just having a good time.
hope you come get food with me every now and again.

The Whopper...jr

so me and gheybin and dave benson went to burger king last night around 11 or so after it took me like 4 years to get my van out of the snow. i actually tried to drive it up that stupid hill by the temple and kept spinning out about 15 feet from the top. i had some sympathetic souls help me push etc. any way after hanging out at gheybins for a while everyone got hungry, so we went to BK and i got 2 whopper jr's a spicy chick sammich and some fries. everyone else got the garden burgers. we went to my house and then ate. i realized one thing as i ate my whopper jr's. i really like whoppers. like, i remember loving them as a kid, and now i still love them. and burger king has done a pretty damn good job keeping the flavor the same. i'm not sure if the distinct whopper flavor is in the pickle juice (which i suspect it is) or if they've some how chemically engineered that flavor. i don't care. i love it.
i'm gonna have a whopper and chocolate pudding party soon. get ready.

chinese style spicy sausage

remember how i said johnny gave me some of this for my birthday? well i finally busted some of it out today. i was making some pre packaged dirty rice crap and i i couldn't live with myself if i didn't have some form of sausage or other processed meat product in it so i decided, what the hey, i'll put some in. i've never had this chinese stuff before so i had no idea what i was getting myself into. best decision i've made all week. i fully endorse putting chinese style spicy sausage in crappy dirty rice mix.
